Ancestral Home is a Montage of an early 20th Century family portrait and a recent photograph of a Hoboken, NJ home.
After many years of experience with traditional forms of printmaking, I find the medium of digital printmaking intriguing. The contemporary introduction of the virtual darkroom has enabled me to integrate fleeting images from life and imagination.
I produce montages using old photographs that I have bought or borrowed. Blending early Twentieth Century portraits with contemporary images suggests intimate moments in time and place that may have occurred. While a picture of an individual may tell one story, I invent another context for each scenario, revealing possible histories influencing the present. Viewers are invited to blend their own remembrances with the illusions I have presented.
